Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to be involved in maturation of 5.8S rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA) and maturation of LSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA). Predicted to localize to fibrillar center. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; heart; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human URB1 (URB1 ribosome biogenesis homolog).
